Use the Set-EventLogLevel cmdlet to set the event logging level registry value for the specified category.

Set-eventloglevel -Identity <ECIdParameter> -Level <Lowest | Low | Medium | High | Expert> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

To run the Set-EventLogLevel cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Server Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the name of the event logging category to display.




The Level parameter specifies the logging level for a specified Exchange server.




The Confirm parameter causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You do not have to specify a value with the Confirm parameter.




The WhatIf parameter instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf parameter, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf parameter.


Error Description


Exceptions Description

This example sets the event log level to High on the local Exchange server for the MSExchangeFDS\FileReplication event logging category.

Run the Get-eventloglevel cmdlet to give you a list of the event categories on your server.

For more information on the Get-eventloglevel cmdlet, see Get-EventLogLevel.

Set-EventLogLevel -Identity "MSExchangeFDS\FileReplication" -Level High
